Chiefs QB Smith focusing on football, not contract

Updated:
 ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) - Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith says that the time is approaching where he will shelve all talk about a contract extension and focus solely on football for the remainder of the season.

The Chiefs have been discussing a new deal with Smiths' representatives for months, though the sides remain far apart. Smith said after practice Wednesday that he's yet to set a date to break off negotiations, but he acknowledged that "at some point mentally it'll come to me."

Smith is due $7.5 million this season, the final year of his contract, and many expect him to get an extension similar to what Colin Kaepernick received from the San Francisco 49ers.

Kaepernick signed a six-year, $126 million deal that includes $61 million guaranteed.
